While claiming that former Opposition Leader in Parliament Sajith Premadasa ‘never prescribed the drug for the Coronavirus as he only brought it to the attention of the relevant individuals’, former Parliamentarian Harin Fernando vehemently rejected the propaganda carried out by distorting the statements of Mr. Premadasa.
“It is regrettable that even amidst this catastrophic situation we are facing as a country, certain parties are talking questionable actions towards their lofty political objectives.
We vehemently reject the propaganda carried out by distorting the statements of the Former Leader of the Opposition Mr. Sajith Premadasa, who has spoken on behalf of the interests of the people, Mr. Fernando, who is also the head of the national campaign Samagi Jana Balawegaya (SJB).
It should also be noted that of the government acts in defiance of the opposition, it is a challenge to the populist rule.
It is no secret that the SJB Leader Sajith Premadasa was one of the pioneering people's representatives within the Parliament who raised concerns pertaining to Coronavirus outbreak, and brought it to the government's attention.
However, the statement he made on behalf of the people are being distorted within social media platforms in a repulsive manner.
The most recent incident is reported to have been attributed to a statement he made concerning several medications that are used to suppress the Coronavirus.
His efforts to bring the government’s focus on world-wide treatment options for the Coronavirus, is to serve as a responsible political leader, since the parliament is not obtainable for a public representatives to speak.
